Michael West — currently starring in Off-Broadway's Forbidden Broadway: SVU — will sing "America the Beautiful" to start the Wheelchair Races. I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change star Amy White will then offer "God Bless America" for the Women's start (at 9:35 AM). And, for the official 10 AM start, Jersey Boys will perform their take on the national anthem.
The five-borough event — which includes more than 37,000 runners — will be broadcast live exclusively on NBC for five hours, starting at 9 AM.
